The outcome of the consultation on the management of HIV-infected healthcare workers has been published.

The people who responded to the consultation generally agreed with the changes recommended. The department concluded that the guidance on the management of healthcare workers with HIV should be revised. As a result healthcare workers with HIV will carry out certain surgical and dental procedures if they are on effective treatment, have very low or undetectable levels of HIV in the blood, and are regularly monitored by both their treating and occupational health physicians. The new arrangements are expected to come into effect in 2014.
